Yesterday was J's first official Father's day. As a gift I made him an appointment for an old skool straight razor shave which is actually just a facial for a man but instead of massaging your face, you get a super close shave and he loved every minute of it -- but I'll let him tell you all about that.
So the straight razor shave thingie was actually on Saturday. On Sunday (the actual holiday) we went to Salty's on Alki for brunch. Have you done this? If you live in Seattle or it's surrounding areas, you must. The amount of food is ridiculous. Do you like seafood? There were mountains of crab legs, oysters, clams and mussels. Smoked salmon as far the eye could see. And the normal breakfast fare of course... waffles, pancakes, eggs, biscuits, bacon, potatoes, bagels, yada yada yada. Oh and my favorite thing... the dark chocolate fountain with marshmallows, rice krispy treats, strawberries and fresh pineapple for dipping. I am pretty sure that I ate 10 strawberries. Gluttonous!
Anyway after brunch we walked on the waterfront and talked about life. And after that we went to the Edmonds art festival and met up with J's parents for a coffee. It was a really nice weekend and we are feeling especially happy about life and our good fortune and thankful for all of it.
